Drabble: A 100 word story written using the word prompt "carpet cleaner".

...Preciseness is my goal this year as I attempt to write shorter stories. The new micro-fiction story format created by provides me the opportunity to enhance this skill. I share with you my thoughts for today's prompt I converted to a ZAPFIC100 story told in exactly 100 words. I hope you enjoy the carpet cleaner, a hilarious tale of a professional not on duty when an urgent call for his services is received.

For my theme, I was inspired by and utilized @mariannewest's Freewrite prompt: Day 1986: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: carpet cleaner.

Below is my story:


Savannah's day began as usual.

6 a.m. Shower 7 a.m. Breakfast.

Glanced at the calendar: Wednesday, May 18. Hurriedly gulped down the last sip of black coffee, waiting for Wallace's call.

8:00 a.m. Retrieved private notebook from kitchen safe, flipped to Assignment section, then pen bookmarked a page.

9:45 a.m. Mobile phone rang. "Two visiting today. Meeting in ten. Unavailable three hours. Handle it, sweetie."

10:a.m Savannah placed the required calls:

Hit man. Check.

Body remover. Check.

Carpet cleaner. On hold.

Unlocking the security gate, the black van entered undetected.

Cursing, Savannah called a backup carpet cleaner.

Drabble: Una historia de 100 palabras escrita usando la palabra "limpiador de alfombras".

La precisión es mi objetivo este año, en el que intento escribir relatos más cortos. El nuevo formato de microrrelato creado por me brinda la oportunidad de mejorar esta habilidad. Comparto con vosotros mis pensamientos para el tema de hoy, que he convertido en un ZAPFIC100 una historia contada exactamente en 100 palabras. Espero que disfrutéis con El limpiador de alfombras, una hilarante historia sobre un profesional que no está de servicio cuando se recibe una llamada urgente para solicitar sus servicios.

Para mi tema, me inspiré y utilicé la sugerencia de @mariannewest: Day 1986: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: carpet cleaner.

A continuación mi historia.


Todo en un día de trabajo

El día de Savannah empezó como siempre.

6 a.m. Ducha 7 a.m. Desayuno.

Miró el calendario: Miércoles, 18 de mayo. Apuró el último sorbo de café solo, esperando la llamada de Wallace.

8:00 a.m. Tomo un cuaderno privado de la caja fuerte de la cocina, voy a la sección de tareas y marco una página.

9.45 Sonó el teléfono móvil. "Dos visitas hoy. Reunión a las diez. No disponible tres horas. Encárgate, cariño".

10:00 a.m. Savannah hizo las llamadas necesarias:

Sicario. Comprobado.

Quitador de cadáveres. Comprobado.

Limpiador de alfombras. En espera.

Desbloqueando la puerta de seguridad, la furgoneta negra entró sin ser detectada.

Maldiciendo, Savannah llamó a un limpiador de alfombras de reserva.
